    I had been writing an extensive review of the history and meaning of the 2nd Amendment for the past several months. I was intending to share it once the heat of the election wore off because my intent was to provide a non-confrontational resource for those interested in educating themselves or others about our 2nd Amendment rights.

    Unfortunately, recent events mean that these videos are needed now more than ever. Below are the first two with many to follow over the next few weeks. They are not rant vids, and they do not disparage those who hold differing opinions.

    I hope these provide you with information you can share with the moderates you know in a way that won't turn them off or require them to be willing to give up a lot of their time. Please share and use the information in the videos so that all Americans can make an informed decision about the future of our country.

    Thanks!

    The second video he mentions an interesting point about the government arming the military.

    In several smaller European Countries upon honorable competion of Military service you are issued a rifle for life. This rifle can be handed down from generation to generation. You can then be called up into service if the country is attacked and you will have a rifle.

    What a tradition of pride, if when you where honorably discharged from the U.S Army, Marines or other services you where issued a rifle to keep and defend the homeland.

    A person I know has his father's Colt 1911 from WWII. He is very proud of it and it still functions flawlessly.

    That's the creation of a "militia" in the historical sense of a group of armed citizens trained to plus up the regular army at a moment's notice. Our National Guard does not technically meet that definition.

    That said, as I point out in the first video, our 2nd Amendment specifically protects the right of "the people" to keep and bear arms. This right thus extends beyond those members of an organized militia to each and every one of us.

    ETA: I also have my grandfather's Remington Rand 1911 he was issued as a B17 airplane commander (a.k.a. "pilot") in WWII. It is in great shape, but I will never fire it.

    The funny thing is that he never wore it after his first mission. He said that with the amount of guns he had shooting at him while he was flying, he couldn't imagine a pistol would do him any good if he got shot down. He felt it was too uncomfortable to wear while flying to be worth it. :)
